Nagpur: The Bombay High Court on Friday refused to grant temporary relief to former Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh and state minority development minister Nawab malik to vote in the upcoming Maharashtra Legislative Council (MLC) elections.
The MLC elections are scheduled for June 20. Jailed Malik had filed a fresh petition seeking permission to cast his vote in the MLC elections using police escorts. Justice NJ Jamadar had passed the order on an interim application in Deshmukh’s bail plea.
The jailed NCP ministers are in judicial custody in separate money laundering cases being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
